I was just wondering why there are so many different manufacturers of each GeForce graphics card.

Also, I was wondering, out of all the different manufacturers, which makes the best card?

nVidia doesn't make graphics cards but only the GeForce chipset, which is a graphics processor. It is then up to all the card makers to use the GeForce processor to make graphics cards. It is the same thing as with CPU's and motherboards, where Intel and AMD make the processors while ASUS & Co make the motherboards. As to why there are so many different graphics card makers, that has to do with economics.

As for which graphics card manufacturer is the best?
There are many good ones, but I would say the eVGA is the best, they always have high quality cards and an impressive warranty. Other great one are BFG and XFX.

What interface are you looking for PCI, AGP, PCI-Express? I have been using Jaton with nVidia chip sets.
